Just when I thought I couldn’t surprise myself, it turns out I could! I was able to paint 19x cultist in a matter of a week, adding them to my Emperors Children project as meat shields. My unit of cultists haven’t been painted properly since I first got them back when Dark vengeance was released!
The painting may look lacklustre and lower quality in appearance compared to my usual painting quality, however, since cultists are easy to wipe out as lesser unworthy worshipers, I’ve gone and done a fairly simple batch painting process to make them fit thematically to the army.
Now that my side project has another unit to add to its ranks, I’m planning on adding more models to the collection (back log models). A second unit of cultists will be added (if I can find more slot bases to use) and finally, add two more Primaris sized marines and one Chaos Lord as my HQ.
This project is nearly over now, I’m glad to have finally gotten a few backlog models painted at last. Those cultists had a long waiting cue before I’d finally painted them (well, one unit out of two).
Now that I look back on the project, I think what’s motivated me the most was starting the army off with the Armigers and reading up on the Emperors Children. I’ve always wanted to start an EC army ever since I’d started the hobby nearly ten years ago, so I’m now really keen to finish this project off.
Thank you for reading this post. If you have any questions, post a comment below and I’ll reply back as soon as I can. Thanks!
